About Susan & Peter Avenell

We currently live in the UK, but try to visit our villa in Moraira as often as we can with our family and friends. It is our idea of a perfect holiday! If you would like any more information on our villa Lagarto or the local area please just ask when booking, we will be more than happy to assist you.

Susan & Peter Avenell purchased this villa in 2005

Why Susan & Peter Avenell chose Moraira

We bought our villa in Moraira in 2005 and have since done many improvements. We love the Costa Blanca coast for it's ease of access, the fantastic climate, scenery, mountain and coastal views. Our villa is situated in the el Portet valley, where the sea and mountain views, especially at sunset, sometimes make it feel like paradise on earth!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have stayed in Moraira many times and this is far and way the nicest villa we have stayed in. We all felt safe at the villa which is a good thing. The pool and garden are fabulous and kept really clean and tidy. Would recommend this villa to anyone. John, Linda and Maria.....June 2014

Well, what can we say a fortnight of complete bliss and relaxation! We thought we were being a might extravagant going for casa Lagarto with 3 beds and private pool - oh but so worth it! This has been our best holiday ever, not a negative point at all to note. Maralyn and Bryan....June 2014

Thank you for the rental of Lagarto, we had a lovely time here and especially enjoyed the pool and balcony, it was really nice to have breakfast whilst looking out to sea. Anna and family... August 2014

We have visited Moraira the 'gem of the Med' many times and have stayed in other villas, but villa Lagarto is by far the best ticking all the boxes! Jan and Will Edwards.... September 2014

Casa Lagarto

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful two weeks holiday at Casa Lagarto. The views from the villa are stunning. We all enjoyed the pool which is large, clean and well looked after. The area around the villa is vast with areas where everyone could sunbath or read a book in the shade. I would highly recommend this villa to anyone visiting Moraira. The villa is clean and spacious having all the comforts of home. A car is essential but well worth it for the villas location and to visit nearby towns and beaches. Thanks to Adam & Jo for their Assistance and help in finding a great restaurant for my wife's birthday. Hope to return sometime in the near future. Tim & Kerry Sheffield

A comfortable villa in a good location

  • 4 of 5

We had a pleasant 2 weeks at the villa, which is set in very quiet surroundings. The swimming pool was definitely one of the highlights on a great sun terrace. Dining area on upper terrace outside kitchen also had nice views out to sea even though the villa is set 2km inland. The inside of the villa was very clean, comfortable and reasonably well equipped. We were looking forward to enjoying BBQ's in the evenings, but we were told on arrival that we were not allowed to use the coal BBQ due to fire risks on surrounding land. Although a gas BBQ was provided it was old and not adequate. Other minor complaints included temperamental hot water supply, but wasn't a big deal given it was August.

We preferred the beach in El Portet, which had shallow warm sea. Perfect for all the family. A couple of good restaurants close by for lunch or dinner. We only had one cloudy day, so decided to head inland to the Algar Waterfalls which were good fun.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. Due to this summer being very dry in Spain, the local authority have banned all charcoal burning BBQ's due to the danger of setting the countryside alight, endangering property and life. The gas BBQ was only meant as back up, although only being two years old we will replace it for next year after having more use than intended. Regarding the hot water, we have since had the boiler serviced and you have constant hot water on demand now. As you say the sea and mountain views from the upper terrace are really quite spectacular.

Comfortable villa for a very relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

The villa was very spacious, very clean and well equipped. We felt very secure with lots of lockable gates. The location is lovely, very quiet, all we heard sometimes were the birds singing. The views from the Naya upstairs are fantastic, sea one way and mountains the other, a perfect place for breakfast or evening drinks. The pool is great, lovely size and lots of space around it for sunbathing or playing bat & ball.

A car is essential for trips to supermarkets (Plenty of supermarkets to chose from) and to go to town/beaches. Its a 30 minute pleasant walk downhill to El Portet and another 15 minutes to Moraira town but its uphill coming back!

We felt at home straight away after meeting Jo at the villa and relaxed immediately and didn't want to leave. A perfect relaxing holiday which lived up to our expectations.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. We are so pleased our villa met your expectations. We have central heating through out our villa for those colder months but unfortunately the weather was not so good in May this year and the digital central heating thermostat probably need altering. Wish we had known whilst you were there and we could have got it looked at. Kind regards Peter and Susan

Great Villa

  • 4 of 5

This is a really lovely Villa, with fantastic view over the hills of Moraira down to the sea. The Beach that it is closest to, El Portet, is really lovely and perfect for kids. You need to get down there early in high summer though as the car park is small. The pool was fantastic and our kids loved it (as did we). The villa is well placed for Moraira, and for the local supermarkets, all within a very easy 5-10 minute drive. Caz is the local person on hand, and she was hugely helpful. I would recommend the villa very highly.

The only reason it is not five stars is that there is no air con in the bedrooms. We did have fans and that was great, but air con would have made it perfect.

Thanks for a great vacation!
